Mainstream Indian fashion chain Bombay High has set its sights on the UK market and is actively looking for a flagship London site.
Retail property consultant Phillipa Jeal confirmed the company, which sells men and women’s casual, sports and formalwear as well as accessories, was looking at premises on or around Oxford Street or Regent Street.
The London store will be the first of a possible ten sites in the UK, with the company eyeing further locations in the South East and in major cities such as Manchester and Glasgow.
Jeal said the company was looking for a store of between 3,000 to 7,000 sq ft. Though a central London location is preferred, the company may consider spaces in locations such as Westfield. It is expected that further viewings will take place in early August.
The chain operates around 34 outlets in India, including 16 stand-alone stores in locations such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Aurangabad, Pune and Chennai.
Parent company Cottstown Fashions, which has an office on London’s Regent Street, also produces private label garments for retailers across Europe.
